Interesting release whose tracks range from a recording of gentle rainfall to electric noise to deep ambient drones. "Prelude to Rain" leads off with just a recording of a rain shower which is followed by the scathing noise of "Rain 1' and then the slow-moving dark drones of 'Rain 2' and then back to a wall of electronic noise in 'Rain 3'. 'Postlude to Rain' is another drone piece but with more electronics and layers that gradually devolves into a rain shower once again. The remaining tracks consist of minimal electronics and solemn drones. Nice listening for a rainy night.
